Dog Abandoned At Train Station With Suitcase Full Of Belongings
Authorities in Scotland are looking for the owner of a poor mixed-breed dog who was abandoned at a railway station with a suitcase containing all his worldly possessions. The Scottish SPCA informed the public that a couple of days back a Shar-Pei crossbreed was left tied to a railing outside the station. Beside him was a suitcase with his pillow, a toy, a bowl and some food.
Since the dog was micro-chipped, the authorities quickly learned that his name is Kai. They contacted the owner who said they sold the dog in 2013 online and didn’t know who bought him.
SPCA Inspector Stewart Taylor said that they would look after him until they could find him a permanent home. Luckily, there are many kind-hearted people out there and Kai is likely to find a new home soon. More than 100 people have already contacted the organization and asked to adopt the unfortunate pooch. Additionally, more than $3500 has been raised to look after Kai thanks to an appeal from the Scottish SPCA.
In the meantime, the Daily Record found out who bought Kai and left him at the station. Apart from abandoning the pooch, 39-year-old Fin Rayner claims she didn’t do anything wrong.
According to her statement, Kai was advertised for sale on Gumtree and she wanted to adopt him. When she came to the station to pay the agreed amount of money for the dog, she said that Kai was not the same dog who was advertised on the website. She took him for a short walk and gave the unidentified owner half the money. When she returned, the man who sold her the dog was nowhere to be found.
Rayner eventually decided that she doesn’t want Kai so she told a member of the staff that he is not her dog and left him there.
